Meet the Artisan
In the picturesque state of Guanajuato, Mexico, known for its captivating colonial architecture and labyrinthine streets, lies the heart of our cherished partner, Encantada. This family-owned workshop has thrived since the 1970s, preserving and promoting the region's rich ceramic craftsmanship. While Guanajuato's beauty is undeniable, it belies the deeper challenges faced by its residents, particularly the devastating impacts of the drug wars that have ushered in poverty and violence. Amidst these challenges, Encantada emerges as a beacon of hope. The workshop not only champions the traditional arts but is also deeply committed to its community. By employing both men and women from surrounding rural areas, Encantada ensures fair wages and creates a sanctuary of safe working conditions. Each handcrafted piece from their collection is a testament to resilience, skill, and transformation. With every purchase from Encantada, you're directly empowering these artisans, illuminating their path to a brighter and safer future.
